As productions looms closer for the next film in the Percy Jackson series, director Thor Freudenthal (The Diary of a Wimpy Kid) continues to fill out his cast. Logan Lerman, Alexandra Daddario, and Brandon T. Jason are all returning, and we recently reported that Big Love star Douglas Smith was in talks to join the cast. Now THR reports that Missi Pyle (The Artist), Yvette Nicole Brown (Community), and Mary Birdsong (The Descendants) will play the three fates in Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Sea of Monsters. All three actresses have comedic roots, as Pyle had notable roles in Galaxy Quest and Dodgeball, while Birdsong is best known for her work on Reno: 911.

Sea of Monsters finds Percy (son of Poseidon) and his demigod friends heading to the Island of the Cyclops (the Bermuda Triangle) in order to retrieve a Golden Fleece. Chris Columbus directed the first film in the series but is stepping back into a producer role on the follow-up. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the first film (Percy Jackson doesn’t hold a candle to Harry Potter), but I guess I’m a tad interested to see what kind of tone/direction Sea of Monsters will take. Hit the jump to read a synopsis of the book. Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Sea of Monsters opens March 27th, 2013.

After a summer spent trying to prevent a catastrophic war among the Greek gods, Percy Jackson finds his seventh-grade school year unnervingly quiet. His biggest problem is dealing with his new friend, Tyson—a six-foot-three, mentally challenged homeless kid who follows Percy everywhere, making it hard for Percy to have any “normal” friends.

But things don’t stay quiet for long. Percy soon discovers there is trouble at Camp Half-Blood: the magical borders which protect Half-Blood Hill have been poisoned by a mysterious enemy, and the only safe haven for demigods is on the verge of being overrun by mythological monsters. To save the camp, Percy needs the help of his best friend, Grover, who has been taken prisoner by the Cyclops Polyphemus on an island somewhere in the Sea of Monsters, the dangerous waters Greek heroes have sailed for millennia—only today, the Sea of Monsters goes by a new name…the Bermuda Triangle.

Now Percy and his friends—Grover, Annabeth, and Tyson—must retrieve the Golden Fleece from the Island of the Cyclopes by the end of the summer or Camp Half-Blood will be destroyed. But first, Percy will learn a stunning new secret about his family—one that makes him question whether being claimed as Poseidon’s son is an honor or simply a cruel joke. [Amazon]

    wow, fake smiles galore…

    I read the entire series, and Sea of Monsters was by far the best book of the series. If they don’t f*ck it up like they did with Lightning Thief, then we should have a really good movie on our hands.

      Have you ever tried to make a movie? I didn’t think so.

        Okay. First off. I sincerely hope you’re about eleven years old, otherwise you need to grow up because you’re everything that’s wrong with society. I’ve seen you a lot lately in the Collider comments section, bashing other people, making unnecessary rude comments. You’re not a troll. You go beyond snark and repartee. You’re just scum.

        Secondly, you shouldn’t be so quick to make assumptions, because you make an ass out of you and — nope just you. I actually have made movies, as I am a film student in Los Angeles. I know what it takes to make a film, and I know how hard it is. But these guys are professionals (it’s Chris Columbus for Christ’s sakes!)… they should know how to make a movie. Besides the fact, it wasn’t really the movie itself that was terribly-made. It was the script. And, being a film student, I’ve also written LOTS of screenplays, and I know what a good screenplay is. I could’ve written something better than the garbage they came up with.

        So. Before you trash other people in the comments, and jump to conclusions, making yourself look like an asshole, you should probably move out of your parents’ house and live life a little. Experience what the outside world is like. Otherwise, you’ll remain the worthless human being you are.

        And no. This is not an unnecessary backlash for a small remark you made. This is long overdue for all of the people you’re responded to on here. Get off of Collider and grow up. Jackass.
